Angela Sippel CPR Refresher Testimonial

” I found the course extremely beneficial and very informative. 

With Alicia’s background as a paramedic, she was able to share experiences which
really helped put into perspective the importance of  CPR.

I do recommend doing your next CPR or First Aid course with Action & Emergency.”

– Angela Sippel

Colin Handley First Aid Course Testimonial

” I found Alicia’s approach very relaxed, but very thorough. She’s certainly concerned with attention to detail.

Of particular interest for me were the new CPR techniques, the use of the defibrillator, and the EpiPen as my grandchildren can be anaphylactic.

I will highly recommend Alicia’s course to anyone considering first aid or refresher courses. “
